About MA

Material Advantage is a professional materials society for students in Materials Science and Engineering. It serves as an "umbrella" organization and grants undergraduates membership in TMS, ASM, AIST, and ACerS. The University of Illinois Chapter is a student organization for undergraduates in Materials Science & Engineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Our goal is to keep the student body informed as to the opportunities available within Materials Science, and to serve as a liaison between the students and faculty. Material Advantage plans both social and professional events, and serves as a resource for MatSE students. It was formerly known as the Undergraduate Materials Organization or UMO.
